By drafting a polished college small forward like Harrison Barnes and trading Dorell Wright, the assumption for many is that Barnes will be the Warriors' starting small forward next season.
Newly signed Brandon Rush isn't ready to concede the starting spot, however.
"I'm coming in trying to get that starting job at the three spot," Rush told CSNBayArea.com. "I've been working hard the whole, entire summer to build up on that."
Here's our take: for Rush to start, Barnes will probably have to struggle early as a rookie. For one, Barnes just brings too much size and upside to the three. On top of that, Rush was simply dynamite off the bench in 2011-12, his first season with the Warriors, connecting on 45 percent of his 3-point attempts. He started just one game last season.
